Received the following message from VARO Manila:

Greetings all;
I am happy to announce the opening of your new VA Manila facility - located on the U.S. Embassy Seafront Compound.  Your new VA facility will provide enhanced services by establishing a "one stop shop" for all your VA needs.  The new facility doubles the number of clinical exam rooms, provides new diagnostic equipment in a number of clinical areas and offers greater and more convenient access to all VA services in a modern, secure and state-of-the-art facility.  The Manila VA Regional Office will open for business in our new location Monday, January 24, 2011.  The Manila VA Outpatient Clinic will open for business in our new location Monday January 31, 2011.  All those with an appointment on or after January 24, 2011 will receive a phone call this week from one of our representatives to remind them of our new location.  The flyer provides more information regarding our new telephone numbers, hours of operation, directions to our new location and important information regarding the new facility.  Please feel free to share this information widely throughout the Veterans community here in the Philippines.  I've also included a picture.  After five years of planning and construction, I am confident you will be pleased with the end result:  A VA designed for you and built to serve you. I look forward to seeing you at your new VA soon.
